Whilst enjoying your day out at Weston, this dynamic and ever-changing corner of our world is worth a visit, whether you have an eye for artistic creations or simply enjoy seeing something new and different.
Originally built in 1767, the Art Gallery was unused for many years before becoming the subject of a total and most sympathetic restoration, thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund. Now set beneath a splendidly characterful old beamed roof, you’ll find the Art Gallery in the building that houses the Granary Grill & Deli, and here you’ll discover monthly selling exhibitions by acclaimed artists from the UK and beyond, along with items on loan to the gallery from private collections. Visitors to the gallery can enjoy a coffee and homemade cake in the Granary Deli or lunch in the Grill.
The exhibitions in the Granary Art Gallery are organised by Weston Park’s Curatorial & Learning Department.
The Gallery is also available to hire for Group and Solo shows. For more information on hiring the Art Gallery, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Penny Timmis SWA, ARBSA
Following the success of her previous shows, The Granary Art Gallery welcomes back South Shropshire based artist Penelope Timmis. Influenced by colour and movement, her brightly coloured floral, animal and landscape paintings will bring a dash of life to any home. She is particularly well known for her farm animal paintings which include cockerels and geese which surround her on her farm.
Having been an established artist for over 10 years, Penelope is an Associate of the Birmingham Society of the Arts and an Associate of the Society of Women Artists. She won best entry with the Royal Birmingham Society of the Arts (RBSA) in 2009 and was short listed for the Daily Mail “Not the Turner” Prize in 2004. In addition to exhibiting in Shropshire, Penelope has also been involved with solo and group shows in Wales.
As well as a large selection of her paintings on display, Penelope’s greetings cards and box canvas prints will also be on sale.
11am – 4pm
During the changeover of exhibitions the Granary Art Gallery will still be open to the public. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee what will be hanging during these interim periods. We apologise for any inconvenience.
